The gyrfalcon by E Potapov( )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Gyrfalcon is the largest of the world's falcons. It is a bird of tremendous beauty, power and presence, the physical embodiment of its wild and dramatic Arctic habitat. It occurs across the whole Arctic region, from Greenland and Iceland through northern Scandinavia and across Siberia and northern Canada, frequenting the high tundra and extreme north of the boreal forest zone. It is a formidable predator, taking birds as large as Capercaillies and swans, and mammals as large as young Arctic foxes, and is traditionally the hunting bird of choice for kings and emperors - especially the rare and stunning white form of the species." "This book looks in detail at the life of the Gyrfalcon - its systemics and taxonomy, distribution, habitat preferences, hunting methods, breeding behaviour, status, and historical and present associations with people. This highly readable and exhaustively researched monograph is illustrated with numerous photographs, line drawings and text figures. This book will appeal greatly to anyone with an interest in birds of prey, and especially to those who admire this magnificent raptor."--BOOK JACKET

Polar reaches : the history of Arctic and Antarctic exploration by Richard Sale( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Polar Reaches tells the full story of the history of exploration of both the Arctic and Antarctic, revealing within its pages that the better-known phenomenal and amazing stories are not so unusual as they seem." "Scurvy, bad weather, and poor decisions frequently led to desperate situations. The men led by Adolphus Greeley were less fortunate than those on the Endurance: of twenty-five who set out, only seven were alive after three years in the harsh Arctic environment, during which they were reduced to eating boot leather, tallow, lichen, and - it was suspected - their dead comrades." "Still, new expeditions were regularly financed and, between the sixteenth and early twentieth centuries, the lands that were previously known largely through legend - the Arctic and Antarctic - were successfully explored and thoroughly mapped. Unfortunately, financial gain was often the incentive for these explorations. Whole populations of whales, seals, and other fur-bearing mammals were decimated as a result. Native peoples were captured and taken back to Europe to be put on display where, invariably, they sickened and died. European and American explorers often displayed a condescending attitude towards those they met; and many British parties suffered needlessly because they insisted upon maintaining their country's traditions rather than follow the examples of the indigenous people they encountered."--BOOK JACKET
